Elimination Chamber Results!

Happy Monday Superstars! Last night was the RAW Brand Exclusive Elimination Chamber event which took place in Las Vegas, Nevada! We seen a few “1sts” in the event and overall I thought RAW put on a great (albeit predictable) show! Let’s jump into the matches and results and if you haven’t watched the event yuet, this if your official **Spoiler Alert, Spoiler Alert!**

Raw Women Elimination Chamber Match-

Both Elimination chamber matches were great but the show kicked off with the 1st ever Women’s Elimination Chamber match. The Superstars were locked in the Chamber with 2 women starting and the 4 locked in pods. Every 5 minutes a random pod would open to allow another competitor in the match. This was elimination rules and the winner left Las Vegas with the Raw Women’s Championship belt! The Superstars participating were Bayley, Sasha Banks, Sonya Deville, Mandy Rose, Alexa Bliss and Mickie James! The Women put on a great show using the cage well to their advantage. You know a match is good if you’re afraid to look at some of the stunts performed. Bayley and Sonya Deville started the match with the other 4 ladies locked in the pod. 1 by 1 they started entering into the match. Leading up to the match we knew that Bayley and Sasha Banks, Mandy Rose and Sonya and Alexa and Micki were in their respective “alliances.” Most of the Superstars teamed up to give themselves the best opportunity to win.

 

Mandy Rose was eliminated first with the Banks Statement, putting her Absolution sister at a disadvantage. The ladies were scaling to new heights, literally and making a great match. elim6

Results: Alexa Bliss Retains her championship, with an oscar worthy performance with her promo at the end!

 

Raw Tag Team Titles –

Next up was the tag team championship match where The Bar Sheamus and Cesaro took on Titus O’Neill and Apollo Crews. I didn’t watch much of this match so I can’t comment on the execution.

Results: Sheamus and Cesaro Retain

 

Nia Jax versus Asuka –

elim4

This match was set up to allow Asuka and Nia to duke it out. If Nia wins, she is entered into the Women’s Championship match at Wrestlemania, if Asuka wins her undefeated streak continues and she has her 1 on 1 match at Wrestlemania. Asuka was quick, agile and hard striking and Nia was her dominant self tossing Asuka around the ring at times. The match went pretty much the way I expected but it was good none the less.

Results: Asuka wins.

Bray Wyatt versus Matt Hardy

Another match that I wasn’t interested in at all. Sad to say but I hope Jeff returns soon.

Results: Matt Hardy Wins.

 

Ronda Rousey Contract Signing-

ronda

So you knew something was going to happen when it was announced that a live contract signing would take place with the “Baddest Woman on the Planet.” I was expecting a locker room protest, attack from behind, something to get the adrenaline moving. Sure enough you see Kurt Angle very distraught and HHH trying to calm him down. Then it happens, Kurt spills the beans that Stephanie McMahon and HHH are manipulating Rousey which didn’t bode well for the UFC former champion. She puts HHH through a table and her whole demeanor changes!

It looks like the Stone Cold versus Vince McMahon but the Women’s version with Ronda taking on Stephanie McMahon. Really excited to see what happens on RAW.

 

Men’s Elimination Chamber Match-

elim

This was my favorite match of the night. For the first time, 7 Superstars were placed in the Elimination Chamber with 3 starting and 4 in pods. The competitors were Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Elias Samson, The Miz and John Cena. Seth, Miz and Finn started which was a good starting line up. Miz was up to his usual antics trying to team up with Seth versus Finn and when the architect declined, offering his alliance to Balor. The first few minutes were entertaining with Miz being tossed around while Balor and Seth fight. The highlight was Balor and Rollins taking turns knocking Miz back down when he tried to get to his feet. The match was really good and became even better when the 6th Superstar, Braun Strowman was released into the chamber.

As expected everyone tried to team up but Braun demolished the field single handedly eliminating most of the competitors. At one point Braun was hit with the AA from Cena, Spear from Reigns, Curb Stomp from Rollins and the Coup de Gras from Balor to lay mangled outside of the ring. Too bad no one could move him back in and PIN HIM!!!! The final match-up was of course Braun versus Roman.

 

Results: Roman Reigns is Brock Lesner’s opponent at Wrestlemania.

Highlights:

  • The costumes from some of the Superstars.
  • The stare downs of the competitors locked in the chamber pods
  • Good executions and promos

 

So I was pretty pleased with the Pay Per View event and the performances of the Superstars. As I started watching pretty late, I did skip 2 matches that I didn’t have any interest in but the main matches were really good. Once again I am amazed at the talent and depth of the Women’s Division and I can’t wait to see the fallout of the event tonight on RAW. Have you watched Elimination Chamber? What were your favorite moments? What do you think will happen now leading into Wrestlemania? Let’s talk WWE!

WWE Elimination Chamber Predictions!

Happy Sunday Novas! Somehow I completely forgot to post my predictions post yesterday for tonight’s Elimination Chamber WWE Event. Now worries, I’ll post a quick prediction for each match today and have my recap post for you tomorrow. The Elimination Chamber event is an annual pay per view where Superstars are locked in a pod inside of a steel cage and the pods are opened during the match to allow a new Superstar into the match. Typically this match has 6 Superstars wrestling and battling to be the chamber victor. This year we have a few surprises in the chamber so let’s look at the line-up!

 

Raw Tag Team Championship Match-

el3

The Tag Team Champions Sheamus and Cesaro will take on Apollo Crews and Titues O’Neill for the titles. While I am happy that there are finally different tag team match-ups I’m a bit disappointed that Sheamus and Cesaro are still champions. This match should be good and I’m happy that Apollo and Titus are getting a featured match.

Prediction: I see Sheamus and Cesaro retaining their titles tonight. But I’m sure the match will be close.

 

Nia Jax versus Asuka-

el4

This match is interesting as Asuka is undefeated. So if Nia Wins, she will be entered into the Wrestlemania Match between Auska and whichever champion she decides to face (remember she never chose Charlotte or Alexa Bliss). I think it would be appropriate and absolutely AMAZINGGGGG if Nia ends Asuka’s Streak and get a marquee match at Wrestlemania.

Prediction: I don’t think Nia will pin or submit Asuka, but she may win the match through disqualification or count out. I’m predicting Nia to win, but idk how it’s going to happen lol.

 

Matt Hardy versus Bray Wyatt-

el5

This match is another of the mind games matches between Bray and Matt. They have been targeting each other for a while now with Matt Hardy using the same tactics as Bray with interfering with the matches.

Prediction: Matt Hardy Wins.

 

Raw Women’s Elimination Chamber Match –

el2

the last 2 years have been groundbreaking for the Women’s Division at WWE. Another “1st” is made tonight with the 1st Women’s Elimination Chamber match and get this… it’s a TITLE MATCH! That’s right, Alexa Bliss will be defending her title in the Elimination Chamber against Sasha Banks, Bayley, Sonya Deville, Mandy Rose and Mickie James. This is going to be great as the women have been stepping up and showing why they are marquee attractions and main eventers!

Predictions: I don’t see Alexa retaining unless Sonya and Mandy team up against Sasha and Bayley. The Classic distraction and Mickie James gets pinned…. But If the title were to switch hands, I see it going to Sasha Banks or Bayley, which will set up a feud for Wrestlemania (because I’m sure Asuka is challenging Charlotte).

 

Men’s Elimination Chamber Match –

el1

The Men’s Elimination Chamber match was set up by a number of qualifying matches the last 3 weeks on RAW. The entrants are John Cena, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Elias Samson, The Miz and Braun Strowman. The stakes are high in this one as well as the winner will punch their ticket to Wrestlemania as the opponent for the Universal Champion; Brock Lesner! I’m super happy about all of the SuperStars in this match and I would be happy with any outcome.

Prediction: So we all want Braun Strowman to win, but if he doesn’t I can see the winner being Roman reigns. I hope it is Braun so that he can finally be champion and bring the title back to being visible on RAW.

 

Ronda Rousey Contract Signing-

el6

One of the highlights will be the signing of Ronda Rousey. Now we all know that she has already signed with WWE, so the public contract signing makes me think that something’s going to happen. Maybe she gets attacked, interrupted by the locker room or opposed in some way. I can’t wait!

Thank you for reading my predictions for tonight’s PPV event. What are your predictions? Are you looking forward to any of the matches? Let’s talk WWE!

Elimination Chamber Recap!

Good Morning all and Happy Monday! Welcome to the recap of the WWE Smackdown Live Elimination Chamber Pay Per View from last night February 12th, 2017. If you read the preview that I released on Saturday you will know that I had a pretty good night of predictions so let’s jump into the results. Also, I’d just like t say that I am so happy there were 3 Women’s matches during this Pay Per View. We are coming out swinging and I love the way the Women’s division of Superstars are heading. Now on to the matches.

The match on the Elimination Chamber Kickoff show was between Mojo Rawley and Kurt Hawkins. There’s not too much to report here, but Mojo Rawley came out on top!

The first match that kicked off the Pay Per view was the match between Becky Lynch and Mickie James.The match was really good as Mickie James pulled out some nice moves. In the end Becky Lynch took the match.

The next match is a correction. I thought it was going to be a triple threat match, however, that wasn’t the case. The match was a handicap match between Dolph Ziggler versus Kalisto and Apollo Crews. The match started with Dolph’s ambush during Kalisto’s entrance. This was his way of leveling the playing field. I quite enjoy Dolph being a true heel now taking on that bad guy role and so did the crowd. Apollo Crews and Kalisto win after Kalisto recovers and makes his way back down to the ring. Dolph goes ballistic after the lost and attacks crews with a chair, further playing into the heel persona.

The Tag Team Turmoil match is a correction as well. This match was literally an elimination match where the last team standing would win the Tag Team Championship.  Heath Slater and Rhyno (Beauty and the Man Beast) started off the match versus Breezango (Tyler Breeze and Fandango). Breezango gets elimintaed by Rhyno and Heath Slater which brings out the vaude villans next. They ar eliminated by Heath and Rhyno as well.The Usos are up next and end up taking out Heath Slater and Rhyno. Next the Tag Team Champs AmericanAlpha comes out and prevails over the Usos. The last team in was the Ascension. After a pretty good bout between the Ascension and American Alpha, American Alpha pulls out the miraculous win to retain their championship.

The next match was another Women’s matchup between Nikki Bella and Natalya. This match was hard fought by both contestants and ended with a double count out. The 2 would continue fighting in the back throughout the remainder of the event.

Next up was Randy Orton versus Luke Harper. This match was pretty good but as anticipated Randy Orton came out with the win.

The Smackdown Women’s naomichamp Championship match was really good with Alexa Bliss taking on the challenger Naomi. The match was very entertaining and I am so proud at how far the Women’s division has climbed. Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome your New Smackdown Women’s Champion Naomi and it’s about time too!

The final match was truly worthy of the main event. It was the actual Elimination Chamber Match of Champion John Cena taking on Dean Ambrose, Aj Styles, Baron Corbin, Bray Wyatt and The Miz. This match was truly incredible from the opening until the very end. The 2 Superstars matched  up at the beginning are John Cena and AJ Styles. With these 2 wrestlers starting in the center of the ring the other 4 were in the pods around the ring watching and waiting for the doors to unlock in 5 minute intervals. Dean Ambrose came out first with a ball of energy jumping off anything he could find. He was a whirlwind shoving both Cena and Styles into the cage. Baron Corbin was out next wreaking havok and hitting people with the End of Days back and forth. Bray Wyatt was out next and then the Miz. All 6 Superstars were in the ring at one point without anyone being eliminated. So what happened?

Baron Corbin distracted by the Miz’s pod being unlocked was pinned by Ambrose. Corbin upset didn’t leave and destroyed Ambrose, allowing Miz to get the easy pinfall. Miz went on a rampage and eventually was stopped in his tracks being eliminated. We are down to 3 Cena, Wyatt and Styles. After intense stares and punches, Wyatt hits Sister Abigail on Cena with the pinfall to follow guaranteeing a new WWE Champion. Styles put up a great fight but the Eater of Worlds Bray Wyatt finally bray gets his Championship and it’s well deserved! During his celebration Randy Orton emerges and stares into the Elimination Chamber. This is going to be amazing for Wrestlemania!

That’s the recap for Elimination Chamber! Check back with me the Saturday before Fastlane for my predictions and the Monday following the Pay Per View for the recap. How are you liking the way that the Wrestlemania picture is coming together? What other surprises and matches do you believe will happen in the next 7 weeks? Let’s talk WWE!

Have a great week!
